April 20 - Old Mine Road

With the winds coming out of the East quite strongly today, my friends and I decided to head west toward the Delaware Water Gap, specifically Old Mine Road. We were rewarded with some nice warbler activity for this time of year, and had both the Louisiana and Northern Waterthrushes.

Nearly a dozen Northern Parulas (above) were already on territory and in song, Pine Warbler were evident along with Palm Warblers too, and a single Yellow Warbler was a highlight. Also seen was Broad-Winged Hawk, Eastern Kingbird, Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers, several Purple Finch and Cedar Waxwings.
